Ci siamo is a full-colour Italian beginner's course. The one-volume two-year course is suitable for beginners at middle to upper secondary level and adult beginners.

The distinctive features of the course are the entertaining approach and the use of fotoromanzi and authentic material which provide an insight into contemporary Italian lifestyle and language.

The course is based on the experiences, adventures and travels of a group of young adults living and studying for a month in a picturesque Italian town. Each chapter begins with a fotoromanzo, followed by a variety of communicative tasks and activities which are thoroughly reinforced in the accompanying workbook. The wide range of activities are designed to make the course suitable for multi-level classes.


Each unit in the textbook contains:

  • Fotoromanzi - introduce in an authentic context the topics and language studied in each chapter.
  • Botta e risposta - initial presentation and practice of new language through the use of illustrations, photos and realia
  • A tu per tu - guided conversation
  • Tocca a voi - opportunities for freer practice (information-gap activities, surveys, role-plays etc.
  • Riassunto di grammatica - main points summarised
  • Questa è l’Italia - cultural awareness material
  • Parole nuove - introduce in an authentic context the topics and language studied in each chapter.

The wide range of text types includes: advertisements, biographies, charts, conversations, diagrams, family trees, interviews, labels, negotiations, questionnaires, reports, surveys, tickets, TV program notes, and many others.

Some of the topics are: sports in Italy, the environment, ecology, travel and tourism in Italy, fashion, family, occupations, Italian cities and towns, dining out, weather, entertainment, and the classroom.

Songs and games relating to the topics and grammatical areas being studied are featured.
